The Solidarity Kitchen School  project provides food and job training in São Paulo, Brazil during the COVID-19 epidemic. The project is administered by Bibli-ASPA, a local nonprofit organization, that delivers thousands of meals per day to vulnerable people including refugees and the homeless.

The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) is supporting their work with a $15,000 grant for a new kitchen facility and for their daily meal services. Vital hospitality job training skills are learned in the kitchen giving new hope to program participants.

“We thank very much The Prem Rawat Foundation for its support, which has been helping us to be able to feed more refugees and also vulnerable Brazilians. The pandemic has worsened the situation of poor people in Brazil, and we intend to continue fighting hunger and social inequality in our country. We hope to strengthen our partnership with TPRF,” say Stela Oliveira, vice president of Bibli-ASPA, and Paulo Elias Farah, president of Bibli-ASPA.

The grant is just one of the many ways TPRF is helping people around the world cope with the pandemic. The Foundation has adjusted its signature Peace Education and Food for People programs for safety, and granted over $300,000 to a variety of international partners to provide food, medical care, and other critical supplies and services to those most in need.
